Here's what's fixed, improved, and still broken in Windows 10 build 18267

Microsoft released a new Windows 10 Insider Preview today, bringing the build number to 18267. It introduces some new features, like improvements to search, accessibility improvements, and input improvements.

But as always, there's a long list of fixes, improvements, and known issues. Here's what got fixed and improved in build 18267:

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashing when invoking actions on certain places, including under Windows Security.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in some Insider experiencing green screens with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL in the previous flight.

  • We fixed an issue where the Action Center might suddenly appear on the opposite side of the screen before appearing on the correct side.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Action Center icon sometimes showing a number of unread notifications, however when you opened Action Center it would be blank.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in Settings crashes on launch for a small number of users.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in recently opened items sometimes showing in jump lists even though “Show recently opened items in jump lists” was disabled in Settings.

  • We fixed an issue where the Built-in Phrases Setting page for the Pinyin IME would hang for a time if you clicked any phase in the list.

  • We fixed an issue where Uninstall would still be shown as an option when right-clicking apps in Start if the group policy “Prevent users from uninstalling applications from Start” was enabled.

  • We fixed an issue where if you had an inbox app with a version number longer than 20 characters it wouldn’t be returned as a result if you searched for it.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in switching audio endpoints from the volume flyout in the taskbar not working in the last few flights.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in some users having issues launching inbox apps after updating to the last few flights.

  • We fixed an issue where if word wrap was enabled when using Notepad with a screen reader some words might unexpectedly be read out as two half words rather than one.

Here are the known issues to be aware of:

  • Task View fails to show the + button under New Desktop after creating 2 Virtual Desktops.
  • Some users will notice the update status cycling between Getting Things Ready, Downloading, and Installing. This is often accompanied with error 0x8024200d caused by a failed express package download.

  • If you change Task Manager settings, the next time Task Manager is opened it will revert to default.

  • If you have a have a large number of OTF fonts, or OTF fonts that support the extended East Asian character set, you may experience some unexpectedly missing text across the system. We’re working on a fix. If you encounter this issue, navigating to the Fonts folder (c:\windows\fonts) may resolve it.

And once again, there's a known issue for developers:

  • If you install any of the recent builds from the Fast ring and switch to the Slow ring – optional content such as enabling developer mode will fail. You will have to remain in the Fast ring to add/install/enable optional content. This is because optional content will only install on builds approved for specific rings.

It's recommended that you read through the known issues before installing a build from the Fast ring. And remember, Microsoft could add items to the list over time, as there are likely issues that aren't already known.

To install the build, head over to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. If you're not on the Fast ring yet, go to the Windows Insider Program tab to get started.
